Charles M. “Chuck” Mueller, age 80 of Prescott, WI, died on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, MN. Chuck was born February 26, 1941 in Fargo, ND to parents Raymond and Lilas Mueller. Chuck attended school in Hillsboro, ND, and graduated from Hillsboro High School with the Class of 1958. Chuck furthered his education at Mayville State College, where he earned degrees in both Business and Mathematics. Chuck was united in marriage to Gladys Gamsby on December 29, 1962 at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Hillsboro, ND. Their union in marriage was blessed with four children, two generations of grandchildren, and over 58 years of love and devotion.
Chuck spent his career as a program manager with Unisys/Univac, where he engineered computer systems for Trident nuclear submarines. Outside of work, Chuck loved to have fun with family and friends. His sense of humor and laughter were one of a kind…. the “Chuckles” kind! Chuck was the founder who started the Prescott Wrestling Club, and was a 4th degree Knight with the St Joseph Parish Knights of Columbus Council. He enjoyed travel, and began making rosaries from Job’s Tears after a trip to Medjugorje. In his free time, he loved to get out and ride his Harley, riding annually to Sturgis, as well as hunt and fish, and curl with others as a longtime member of the St Paul Curling Club. Chuck relished the country life on his hobby farm, and always had room for a black cat around the farm. Chuck will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Chuck is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Gladys; children, Mike Mueller, Daniel (Kris) Mueller, Patrick (Amanda) Mueller, and Kristi (David) Arndt; grandchildren, Maurrissa (Philip) Kern, Mackenzie Mueller, Austin Mueller, Mikayla Fiedler, Braelee Mueller, Savannah Fielder, Jarik Mueller, Coleton Arndt and Izabella Arndt; great-granddaughter, Lily; four brothers; four sisters; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Chuck was preceded in death by his parents.
